A kidney transplant patient, whose husband donated the life-saving organ, found a home closer to medics and her family at our Centurion Park development in Haltwhistle, Northumberland.
Eileen and Derek Rose were desperate to live nearer to the hospitals they regularly had to visit. The sale of their old house went through just the day before surgery, and now the couple are settling into their new home nearer to their daughter Jane, who lives just outside Carlisle.
Derek said: “Centurion Park in Haltwhistle was perfectly located and we fell in love with the house as soon as we saw it but couldn’t make the move until our other house in Ingleton was sold.
“I have to say that Gary Anderson, the Homes Sales Executive at Centurion Park, did a great job for us and we were in our new home just seven weeks after the operation. It is making life so much easier and Eileen is progressing well.”
When Gary told our head office about the Roses’ story, we made a £250 donation to the recently opened Institute of Transplantation department at the Freeman Hospital in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Stephen McCoy, managing director with our parent company, Galliford Try Partnerships North, said: “We are so pleased that things have worked out so well for Derek and Eileen and delighted that we have been able to help them in their quest to move nearer to family and the medical support they need.”
